A Quiet Place

John Krasinski (The Office) directs, co-writes and stars alongside Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow) in this horror in which a family must stay silent to hide from deadly creatures that hunt by sound.

Set in the very near future, a rural American family has adapted to a world now inhabited by a plague of vicious killing machines that have brought down modern civilisation. Living their lives in near silence to escape detection by the monsters' super-hearing, parents and children struggle with domestic life as well as the need to remain human in the face of unstoppable creatures trying to snuff out their existence.

Sound has always been an essential element of cinematic horror: a buzzing chainsaw; a creaky door; a humming, Edwardian child. What is heard is always more terrifying that what is seen. And, done right, what is not heard is scariest of all. A Quiet Place takes this to an extreme, setting itself in a world where survival is only possible in complete and utter silence.

Sometimes, getting on the clever/whatever wavelength of a horror film and just rolling with can be a part of the fun. "A Quiet Place" is that kind of movie.

Though it's Krasinski's third time in the director's chair, it's his first home run thanks, in no small part, to the film's emphasis on family and Krasinski's choice of leading lady-his wife and mother of his two children, Emily Blunt.

Rallies a cry for intimate originality in film which has long been muted by bloated blockbusters and tiresome, unfulfilling sequels.

Even moviegoers who don't accept the metaphor are going to have the pants scared off them.

A bravura monster movie which just doesn't let up, ratcheting tension with nary a word uttered on screen.
